The Child Protection Improvement Programme was established in February 2016. There are nine interconnected work strands which are helping to deliver our child protection system vision (the Child Protection Systems Review; Neglect; Child Sexual Exploitation; Child Trafficking; Child Internet Safety; Children’s Hearings; Inspections; Leadership; and, Data and Evidence.
On Our vision for a child protection system in Scotland is one that keeps children safer from abuse and neglect by placing the wellbeing of Scotland’s children at the heart of everything it does by:
- being rooted in GIRFEC;
- both engaging early and supporting families;
- empowering practitioners to intervene to protect children when support is not working; and
- having a transparent and learning culture which values and supports its workforce.
Partnership with stakeholders has been fundamental to the programme’s delivery through the External & Internal Advisory Groups; a Systems Review Group and other strategic and working groups. This report sets out the key messages from CPIP so far and the actions that we will take forward in the next phase of the programme.
